Juul Labs announced it has reached a settlement covering more than 5,000 lawsuits and about 10,000 individual plaintiffs, ending legal uncertainty for the e-cigarette company.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

Juul said Tuesday that it had secured an equity investment to cover the cost of the settlement, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Juul has been in talks with investors, including longtime board members, Hyatt Hotels heir Nick Pritzker, and California investor Riaz Valani, about a financial bailout, first reported by the Journal.

“In our ongoing fight for our company and mission, today’s news represents yet another significant step to secure our path forward,” Juul Chief Executive K.C. Crosthwaite wrote in a memo to staff Tuesday.

He said the settlement “addresses the vast majority of outstanding litigation facing our company.”

Many of the lawsuits accused Juul of marketing to children and teens.

Juul has said it never targeted young people, but has been working to regain the public’s trust.
